Teaching using the asynchronous delivery of training materials or content using computer network technology. People are not online at the same time and interaction does not occur without a time delay, allowing people to participate according to their schedule, and to be geographically separate from the instructor. The technique sometimes includes the use of discussion boards and/or chat rooms. [1] See also: Asynchronous Communication, Synchronous Learning, Distance Learning
